Sen. Clinton Delays AIDS Law's Renewal, Citing Cut in N.Y. Funds

Date: August 23, 2006
Author: Jeffrey H. Birnbaum
QUOTE: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is holding up renewal of the primary federal law that battles HIV/AIDS, the 1990 Ryan White Act, causing a rift among activists...But she said that the Ryan White measure as drafted would "unfairly shift millions of dollars in funding away from New York and other states that have been hardest hit by the epidemic, jeopardizing their ability to provide vital care and treatment services."
